I am literally beside myself with joy to see my very own hoop house greenhouse in my backyard! This is officially my new favorite place to be!
Day 2 arrived, and up went more poly.
Covering the sides and ceiling made the inside space so much warmer within such a short time!
And I can’t forget one of my most favorite parts … the roll-up side that I can do all by myself!
When I was younger and worked in greenhouses, some were very technologically advanced and others …. not so much. And it would take 2-3 people to roll up and clamp one side of the poly.
But in MY greenhouse I can do it all by myself! Dave Tidwell, from Eden Greenhouses, configured my roll-up side with a T-handle that gives me flexibility to roll it up as far as I want. All by myself!
I can roll it up a quarter, halfway, … whatever I need and it locks in place!
This is just how Christmas morning feels to me ….. but BETTER!
Then they built me a raised bed on the South Side.
We oriented my greenhouse this way – so it gets the most sun exposure possible!
Here you can see the finished raised bed and roll-up side down.
And, roll-up side up!
Ahhhh …. It really is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen!
Now I just have to prepare the ground in the hoop house and move my seedlings that I started under lights in the basement up and out into the greenhouse!
I really am so excited!
